Ballet only is taught in these levels and all classes are twice a week for one hour.

  • Division 1 – This level develops a student’s readiness to progress to a higher, more structured level of work. This involves physical conditioning, developing the ability to concentrate and lengthen the attention span, learning the basic deportment and behavior expectations of the ballet class, and the most fundamental terminology and technical movements of classical dance. Students also develop coordination skills and the ability to take direction from the teacher.
  • Division 2 – Work of level 1 plus greater concentration on the establishment of correct placement, use and control of turnout of the legs, and understanding of the use of the working and supporting legs. Students will progress in using the positions of the head and port de bras, particularly at the barre.
  • Division 3 – All work of level 2 is consolidated and reviewed in Division 3. The use of 5th position is introduced and practiced at the barre and in the center work. Barre and center exercises are completed and extended in length. Some demi- pointe work is introduced as well as the poses croise and efface.
